You need to contact the Toshiba support center close to your place to get the replacement motherboard. Now before this is ordered estimate the total cost of the board, including freight/insurance. If higher than expected you must try to get yourr old set bartered for spares and then decide to go in for a new laptop.-- even if the cost is higher by spending an extra 30 %. to the cost of the new board.
What you need is to have the USB board replaced.It's a small part that costs $29.95 at Impact computers.I'm sorry to say , but I don't think your technician is teling you the truth; I see this a lot with repair shops and technicians.
Here's a link to pictures of your motherboard, and a link to the part you need, on the Impact computer website. Your Motherboard: http://www.impactcomputers.com/k000045520.html
No, do not throw away. completely dry and try again. You can sometimes use a USB keyboard. REplacement keyboards for laptops are surpirisingly cheap, not counting install, but typically install is not serious, often no case opening...Toshiba, however, is sometimes a different story.....
A note about computers, Lower cost and seriously better stability are the reason to look at a new computer. Essentially, with an old machine, you put most of the cost of a new machine into repairs. but you still have an old machine....... Which will fail someday....
ALWAYS back up your data and All user files, like contact lists...E-mail addresses....
That is a tricky one. Guessing that you already have the new laptop, there is a usb adaptor that accepts SATA, IDE 3.5" and IDE 2.5" drives. You plug your drive into this adaptor, and plug the usb into your new computer. Now you can access all of the files on the old hard drive.
Have to be taken to either your local PC repair shop or sent back to the manufacturer. I would send it back to the manufacturer because they are more familiar with your system. There is nothing you can do to fix it has to be fixed on motherboard.
Most likely replacing your motherboard will cost a ton of money (either the part, or the work and labor will cost a lot) . It would probably cost less to buy a used laptop with the same specs: http://cgi.ebay.com/Toshiba-satellite-m115-s3094-core-duo-laptop_W0QQitemZ250273284600QQihZ015QQcategoryZ177QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem If your laptop is under warranty, disregard what I just said, but if it isn't I would sell your broken laptop on ebay, and buy a new or used one.
If you want to keep your old data, you can just swap out your hard drive.
